Alexander Gorlin Architects was commissioned to create a series of residential and mixed-use buildings within a new 85-acre residential neighborhood in Jersey City. The first of our projects to be completed was The Zenith, a luxury loft rental building
. The eight-story building includes 140 residential units and three restaurants at street level.
The Zenith engages with the surrounding neighborhood in part through double-height glazing on the ground floor, which opens the building to the street. The simple, regular facade of the building lessens its perceived scale and allows for multiple configurations of the three unit types — studios and one- and two-bedrooms.
